R. Kelly Guilty Of Child Porn Charges And Acquitted On The Rest

A New York court has already sentenced R Kelly to 30 years behind bars on various charges - and now an Illinois jury has had their say: guilty of six charges against him, acquitted of seven others. 

The Illinois Federal Court trial of Kelly centered around charges of producing child pornography (videoing sexual encounters with minors) as well as charges of conspiracy and enticement. Breaking it down: Kelly was convicted on three of four child pornography counts and acquitted on charges that he conspired to obstruct justice at his 2008 trial which stemmed from a 2002 state case. He was also found guilty on three of five counts of enticement of a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity.

Sentencing will be held at a later date. Kelly's attorney, Jennifer Bonjean, has said she is considering filing an appeal.

Wendy Williams Checks Into Wellness Facility

Wendy Williams has had a rough go of it lately. Speculation as to her health made it difficult for her to continue hosting her own show, "The Wendy Williams Show," and after almost fourteen years and a rotating panel of guest-hosts, the show was retired - replaced by one of those that sat in for her, Sherri Shepherd, whose new show "Sherri" debuted this week.

With the pressures of a daily show no longer an issue, her health has become a priority. According to her reps, Williams has checked into a "wellness facility." "She is taking some time to focus on her health and wellness as she prepares for a major comeback for the next level in her career with "The Wendy Experience Podcast,” Williams’ rep tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Ms. Williams is being treated by a team of some of the best doctors in the world. We ask for your prayers and well wishes during this time.”

In addition to dealing with her health issues, which include Graves' Disease and lymphedema, Williams has been very open about her past struggles with substance abuse, which some fear may have also been a factor in her deteriorating health.
